Reread : Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be. 


I already talked and review this book on the blog. But i just finished an other reread of it and had to let you guys know : Even after the third time, this book stays mind blowing.

I will never get bored of it. It’s like i fall in love all over again with the story, the writing and those characters. 

So, if you haven’t read it. Do it. Do it now.

My first review of this perfection is here : X if you want to see me fangirl about it.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe : 5/5

Review : The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful. Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back. There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right? 

I think Becky Albertalli is my new queen of contemporary. Ugh, this was such a good book. The best part of it has to be our main character, Molly. She was fun to follow around. Her voice just sounded so true and human. She is incredibly relatable, very human with all her good and bad side. The side characters were are so fun too. It’s hard not to like Molly and Reid’s interaction. I found myself smiling a couple times at their jokes. the storyline was entertaining, was hooked from the start. it touches some topics we don’t see much in YA Contemporary and she did it well. Obviously, her writing was perfect full of awesome geeky references.

Oh, and Simon makes a tiny visit, that’s really all we could ask for. ❤

Meet the bookstagrammer tag.


Hello World, it’s tag time! woot woot, haven’t done one in a little while. This one is from instagram (#meetthebookstagrammer2)  but i liked the questions enough to put it on the blog instead. 

My Instagram is @ZombiieeX if you are interested in checking out my book pictures.

1) Where would you like to live? 

In a big city. New York or London would be my top pick, but i also have a soft spot for Toronto.

2) Did you plan your instagram account to be bookstagram?

oh no xD It started with some random pictures, but i never really used it at the time. When i posted my first book picture, i had no idea what bookstagram was. I just wanted to take a picture of what i was reading, i keep doing that and now i couldn’t go a day without checking out instagram and my bookish people.

3) What is your dream job?

Writer was always the goal. Telling story is just something i love doing and i hope one day it become my job.

4) Which authors (dead or Alive) would you like to meet?

JK Rolling is the obvious answer here, i’d like to say thank you for creating such an important part of my world. I’d love to also meet Victoria Schwab and Edgar Allan Poe.

5) What is your favorite place you traveled to? 

New York all the way. Such a fun and entertaining city. Also, there’s Broadway, so i’m in love.

6) Favorite adaptation?

Soooo hard to just pick one. I’m easily pleased when it comes to book to movie adaptations. Again, the obvious answer here would be Harry potter because i LOVE the movies. But i’m gonna mention the Me Before You movie that just hits me in the feels everytime. great adaptation, perfect cast, AWESOME soundtrack.

7) Happy place/food/song?

omg. i could write a full blog post with just this question, but if i had to pick just one of each i’d say : Planetarium, chocolate and the Elephant Love Medley from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

8) If you got stuck on an island with 3 fictional characters, who would it be?

oh god, i’m not sure if i’m suppose to pick characters who’d be useful, but i’m going with people i’d love to meet : Jem from TID because BOOKBOYFRIEND, Delilah Bard from ADSOM because she’d be freaking entertaining and awesome, and i think i’ll pick Jesper from Six of Crows, but i’d accept any characters of this series. Jesper is just one of my favorite.

That’s was the #meetthebookstagrammer2, you can do it over on instagram.

Sarah plays LITTLE NIGHTMARES

Played on Xbox One

It’s been a while since i had that much fun playing a game. I mean, i always love my horror games, but they are usually intense and stressful. This one had that element too, but in i think in a very different way, it was such an interesting game, Very creepy I mean, those evil characters were absolutely horrifying. I love them all. I think they all made great vilains. They were terrifying in the best way possible.  The whole game was just fantastic. The visual was really pleasing, it’s a style i just adore. The story itself is not much explained, there’s no dialogue, you kinda have to guess what’s going on with what you are seeing, that was no problem for me. I was hoping for a little more info once i got to the ending, but i didn’t. It left me wanting more, but i still like how it ended.  I loved our charater, Six, we know nothing about her (him?) and she was very fun to play. She was adorable.

I guess you guys can see i loved that game, i loved every part of it. Played it in one sitting, wanting so much more once it was over. Little Nightmares is a great game, a new favorite for me. I can only recommend it.  

LITTLE NIGHTMARES :  5/5

Review : Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips

The zoo is nearly empty as Joan and her four-year-old son soak up the last few moments of playtime. They are happy, and the day has been close to perfect. But what Joan sees as she hustles her son toward the exit gate minutes before closing time sends her sprinting back into the zoo, her child in her arms. And for the next three hours–the entire scope of the novel–she keeps on running.
Suddenly, mother and son are as trapped as the animals. Joan’s intimate knowledge of this place that filled early motherhood with happy diversions–the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines–is all that keeps them a step ahead of danger.


This book comes out July 25th 2017

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book was just one big crazy ride. If i didn’t have to stop for being an actual adult, i would’ve been reading it in one sitting. The story is disturbing. especially in a world like the one we live in, where shootings seems to happen everyday. It’s heart breaking to see a mom just wanting to protect her child with everything she has. Scary to have chapters set in the shooters mind. Don’t pick up this book expecting an action pack thriller, it’s not that. it’s a more quiet type of story. It’s dark, it’s heavy, it’s a psychological horror that could be taken out of the news. The ending leaves us not knowing much, i kind of like it to be honest, but i can easily see why other would not. The writing was beautiful. I liked seeing Joan thoughts as the day goes by, from lovely memories to horrible possibilities, you can see horror unfold in her head. She’s a smart main character, she use her head when other panic. It was really interesting to see the mother/som relationship put in such a tense situation, seeing both character react in their owm way. Lincoln is adorable. So lovable and just a great kid. Even in this situation he managed to make me smiled. 

Fierce Kingdom : 4/5
